A hike up to a peak with a friend was just the thing for a lovely December day in Arizona. The Pinnacle Peaks trail system in Scottsdale, Arizona provided a chance to get some hiking in and then enjoy a lovely view. I couldn’t believe how many people were out hiking. The trail was busy with couples, families, and dog walkers. The switchbacks were easy to follow and moderately difficult with a lot of rocks to maneuver around.
We did not climb all the way to the peak but close enough to find a lovely spot to meditate a bit and then enjoy the view. There was a Mormon Temple down below, a resort, a water park, and a whole lot of homes. And then of course we gals spent some time just chatting about life; our dreams, our goals, and failures and successes.
